Hundreds of mourners gathers Thursday in Yehud ahead of the funeral procession for slain Border Police officer Hadar Cohen, who was killed in a terror attack the day before at Jerusalem's Damascus Gate.

The 19-year-old was to be buried in the central Israeli city's military cemetery.

Among those paying their last respects to Cohen were her fellow Border Police colleagues, who were seen in tears congregating and hugging.

Cohen's partner who was wounded at the scene Wednesday, Ravit Mirilashvili, left the Jerusalem hospital that had been treating her in order to arrive for the funeral.
